Are Dot we Nobles ? we who trace
Our pedigree so hijih
That liod for u. anil tor oar race
Created earth and t-ky,
A"') light aod air and time aud space
To serve us and then die.
Are ire not Princes? we who stand
As heirs beside hid throne ;
We who can ca.l the promised laud
Our heritage, cur own,
And answer to no less command
Than Gud s, and His alone.
Ave we not King? ? both night and day,
From early until late.
About our bed, about our way,
A jruard ot angels wait ;
And so we watch and work and pray
in UiorS than royal state.
0 God, that we can dare to fail,
And date to v we must !
0 God, that ! can ever trail
Such banners iu the dust,
Ca:i let such .starry honors pale,
And such a blazon t ust.
Shall we upon such titles bring
The uint of sin and shame?
Shall we, the children of the King.
Who bold so grand a claim,
Tirnt-;h hy any meaner thing
The glory of our name?

'"Dear, dear ; no toast ; Cj;s boiled as
hard as brickbat, and the coffee stone cold."
And Mr. Peters ro.a form tho tabl in a
temper by no mean amiable, and ransr the
Loll violently. There was no anwer. He i
rang again, a third, a fourth time, and still
D) answer! Out of all patience, he went to
the door and called "Maria ! Maria 1"
A slight, pretty, little woman, dressed in a
soiled, tuuibled wrapper, with hair in a
date of direful confusion, answered his sum
mons. She had one of thoj bright ficei
wliieli nature intended should be di eked
with continue! snjihs; but now a'l its r.we
iu bloom, it wasdmwi to its full length, and
the large blue ey s had a serious or rather
d ieful expre-siij:), totally at variance with
iti usual joyous look. Her voice, too, had
lit its melodious, ringing sound, and wui
tubdued to a dir.mil whine.
'What is it. Joseph V
"Where's Hridgct ?'
' Gjue out lor ine. I want more while
ri'ubon fur my ascension robe."
Mr. Peters t-aid a very naughty word, and
then continued : "Cold coffee, hard eg.s,
Iraki's not lit to eat."
"I wu.-.h," whined his wife, "you would
take les of temporal m:it!er and turn your
attention to the n-at end of life."
''Hans i; all, !iia.Jam, I like to ei.joy my

"Oil, Jo.-eid), if you tvjuid only eoiue in
to tiut b'evsed circle."
'"Oh, Maria, if you would csily come out
of it. Where are the boys ?"
"I'm sure I doti'i know."
"Are titer going to school to day?"
"No, dear Joseph."
"Fjr whar rei.-o:, tu.idttiti ?''
"My J.';ir. their teaith-M ha given tip the

while there's time. Von Mill have a week
for preparation an 1 repentance ! "
"lu-peiiUtin-! Well, when I take up the
subject, it will take more than a week to put
it through."
And Mr. Peters put on his coat and took
up hi hat.
"Joseph." a": J bis wife, "you nee 1 not
tonj hiitua any dinner. I shall be out, and
I ii take l lie boys over to their uncle's f;r
din tier."
Jie made no answer, unless the violently
e nptutie manner in which he closed the
door was one. Muttering with anger, he
Strode into a restaurant to make a breakfast
Here he was bailed by one of hi friends,
i't i-J. t'emers, who looked upas he heard
Joe s order.
"Ilalkil " heerted. "you hero? What

"No."
"Had a quarrel?"
"iloris to town ?"

".Servants all dead?"
"No."
''Well, what in thunder's to pay?"
"Maria's joined the Millerites!"
Fred gave a long, shrill whistle, and then
ni J : ' lioing to ascend next week ?"
'' os, and if 1 don't commit suicide in
the meantime, you may congratulate me.
I a:n almost distracted. Cau't get a decent
uieal, children running riot, servants saucy,
bouse ail iu eonfusion, wife got the blues,
either quoting the speeches of the elders at
or sewing on a white robe, and groaning
every third or fourth stitch. Hang it all,
Fred. I've a great mind to take poison or
join the army."
"H'tn ! h'm ! you give an enchanting pic
tare, but I think 1 can suggest a cure.
"A
cure :
"Yes, if you will promise to tate uiy ad
tee, I will make your home pleasant, your
"ife cheerful, and your children happy."
"Doit!" cried Joe. "I'll follow yonr
word like a soldier under his superior officer.
"What shall I do?"
At tea time Mr. Peters entered his home,
whistling. Maria was seated at her sowing,
tod there were no signs of preparation for
tie ereoing meal
"Maria, my dear," said Mr. Peters, "is
tea ready ?"
"I doa.t know," was the answer, "have
been out all day attending meeting."
"Oh, very well ; never nind. Attending!
You are resolved, then, to leave next week?"
"Oh ! Joseph, I must go. when I am call
ed."
"Yes, ray dear, of course. Well, I must
resign myself, I suppose. By the way, my
dear, lias it ever occurred to you that Ithrll
be left a widower with three children ? I
think I am a handsome man yet, my love,"
and Joe walked over to the glass, passed bis
fingers through bis hair, and pulled up his
collar. Maria looked up rather surprised.
"Yon see, dear, it is rather a relief for
you to go qt'.ickly, you know. It is so wear
ing on the nerves to have long illness; and
besides, my dear, there will be no funeral
expenses to pay, and that i3quite a saving."
Mrs. Peters' lips quivered, and her large
blue tyes filled with tears. Joe longed to
quit his heartless speech and comfort her.
but he was feartul the desired effect was not
yet gained.
"So, my dear." he continued, "if you
must go, I have been thinking of getting
another wife."
"What?" cried Mr--. Peter?.
"Another wife, my love. The house must
be kept in order, and the boys cared for."
The grief was gone from Maria's face, but
her teeth were hat with a look of fierce
wrath.
"Another wife, Joseph! Anither wife !"
"Yes. I think I luve selected a good
auccessor. I have deliberated a long time,
when I was a bachelor, between her and
yourself. You will like her; she is your
bosom friend !"
"What ! Sarah Iugraham !"
"Yes, my dear. I think that on the day
you ascend,! will marry Sarah Io.grah-.iiii I"
"What, that good-for-nothing, silly, emp
ty-headed old niaid, the mother of my chil
dren! What!"
"Well, my dear, it seems to be the best I
can do. I don't want to leave my business
and go a courting) and she will havo me, I
know."
"No doubt! Oh, you great brutal, hate
ful "
"Stop, my dear, don't fly into a fury!
We will try to s-pend our last week iu hap
piness. Oh, by the way, I have a proposi
tion to make."
"Go ou, sir ! Do not spare tue !"
"Ah, yes, that is tho very thing I wish
to do. 1 know your niiud 13 entirely en
gtt'sfed with your ascension, and I wish to
sp:ire you the care of the house. Suppose
you in v he Sarah hero to -morrow, to stop a
week I"
"What!"
"Then I can arrange our matrimonial
preparations in the evcuiug, while you are
at tho lecture."
"What!" "
"And you can leave the house in her
charge ail day. That will give you plenty
of tiu.e to go or.t, and tdie ean learn the
ways of the house."
"What!"
"Ami, my dear, one little favor. It may
be the last I shall ever ask of you. Stay at
home one or two days, and show her around,
where you keep things, and so on, so that
she won't have.rtly trouble in keeping order
aftet you go. You will do this to oblige tue,
won t you :
Mrs. IVters, for an answer, relied up the
ascension rube into a ball and fired it at Joe.
The cotton, scissors, work basket and table
cloth followed each other in rapid succession,
and he was unable to 2y. Then Maria's
rage found vent in words.
"So! you are going to marry Saraii!
That's tho reason you whistled so nice when
you came in ! But you shan't marry her,fir !
You shan't have that, gratification 1 I will
stay, if it is only to spite you 1 I won't go !
1 tell you, Mr. Peters, that I won't go!"
"But, my dear, you must go, if you are
cotne for." ,
"I won't go!'.'
' But consider, my dear."
"I won't go I"
"P.ut what will Sarah Ingraham think
of it?"
"Sarah ! Pon't dare to mention Sarah to
u;e acain 1 I T T ob ! T am fairly chok
ing!" and the little woman threw herself
into a chair, in a fit of hysterics.
Nest morning M Peters met Fred iu the
street.
"Well, old boy, how goes it ?"
"Fred," was the reply, "I am the hap
piest man in the world ! I have regained my
wife, and domestic peace, and got rid of a
busy, tattling old maid, who, under pretence
of loving my wife, was everlastiugly inter
fering iu all our household arrangements."
"Then Mrs. Peters will not ascend, will
ahe?"
"If Sarah is to be my second wife, and
stepmother to uiy children, Mrs. Peters has
concluded that, on the whole, she won't go."
A fool, says the Arab proverb, may be
known by six things: "Anger without
cause, speech without proSt, charge without
motive, inquiry withont object, putting
trust in a stranper. and not knowing his
friends from his foes."
Josh Billings says : 'I will state for the
information of those who haven't had a
chance tew lay in their insect wisdutn az
freely az I have, that one single hornet, who
feels well, will break up a large camp meet,

Charity is friendship in common, and
friendship is charity enclosed.
Improvidence in youth is conspiracy a
gainst comfort in old age. .
A Sensible Idea; about Visiting.
The French gentry are adopting the plan
of inviting guests by series, to their chateaux.
And each individual sets forth the exact
length of time the guest is expected to stay,
as well as tte day he is to come. Not a
bad plan either. A family may be very
glad to see a friend on a given day, and to
entertain that friend on a given day, and to
entertain that friend for a given time; and
yet it might be very annoying and incon
venient to have that visitor at another time,
or to have his visit ptolonged. It is the
unexpectedness and length of visits which
vex aird fret families more than anything
else. The ea.c with which people can now
get about is producing such a rage for visit
ing, that hospitable families are really in
danger of beiug worn out, and rendered
utter'y wretched, if not actually improverish
ed, by the swarms of friends who find it con
venient and pleasant to make these hospita
ble houses their temporary homes while
engasing in their own business or pleasure.
No considerate, well bred person will
even presume to make a friend's house a
stopping place, even for a day, without
having first ascertained whether such a
course would be convenient and agreeable
to that friend ;"and ho should never overstay
the time designated, except on the most
urgent invitation.
What Happened is the Towel. A
few days ago, on board the Express Train
of the Philadelphia and Heading Railroad,
bound southward, under the care of con
ductor Fiescoln, were a young lady and
gentleman seated together, bearing the ap
pearance of a couple recently married, or
wishing most heartily they were. It was
observed by the passengers that the lady
had on her lips a bit of black court plaster
probably she had a sore lip. This was notic
ed before the train had entered the tunnel
at I'hcenixville. which is 1930 feet. After
the train had passed the tunnel the passen
gers saw another sight ! For lo ! the court
plaster, by 6ouie hoeus pocus, had changed
lips, and now the young man had it bad.
The -niysterous changing of the plaster be
came the subject of conversation amonjjthe
other passengers and all on board indulged
in a hearty laugh, as light beijan to dawn
upon their wonderings. Light began also
to dawn upon the the minds of the couple,
when the train stopped at Pheenixville. and
violent blushing ensued. The question is,
"What happened in the tum-.cl.
There is a mosqutlo bar in vogue among
the plantation hands and boatmen in some
parts of the South, which answers every
purpose to t-he letter: it is common coal oil.
A small quantity of oil is dropped on a piece
of cotton and then squeezed out as dry as
possible ; after which the cotton is rubbed
over .the face and hands. No mosquito will
alight' where the Feent has been left.
have tried it and then exposed myself to
clouds of them on various occasions without
experiencing the slightest annoyenee.
Thousands of them would hover within fin
inch of my face, and sing by the hour, but
i none wou'd d:irc touch. Without having
tiiedit, one would naturally suppo-e that
the smell of the coal oil would be very disa
greeable: not so ; one never smells it at all
in five minutes after it has been applied.
Old TttEts. An English elta, which
has stood in South Boston, Mass, no one
knows how long, was recently cut down to
make way for improvements. The tree was
over sixty feet high, with wide spreading
branches, and no sign of decay was visible
in any part. The trunk iiii eighteen feet
in circumference at the ground and tsotne of
the limbs were two feet eight inches in di
atueier. Imbedded in the trunk and grown
over with wood werc-found naib-,ind a stone
the size of a ben's egg. At eleven 'eet
from the butt and sixteen inches from the
bark was found, standing upright, an old
gun barrel, with the woou closely filling the
tube.
Dr. Tyng met an emigrant family going
West. Oa one of the wagons there hung a
jug with the bottom kudeked out. "What
is that?" asked the doctor.
"Why it is uiy Taylor jug."
"And what is a Taylor jug ?" asked the
doctor again.
"I had a son in Gen. Taylor's army in
Mexico, and tho General always told him
to carry his whisky jug witk a hole in the
bottom, and that's it. It is the best inven
tion I ever met with for hard drinkers."
The heart is six inches in length, four in
diameter, and beats seventy times a minute,
four thousands oue hundred times per hour,
one hundred thousand eiKht hundred per
day, acd thirty-seven million seven hundred
and seventy thousand time per year. For
a female heart in love multiply by four.
A Nasiiville local editor has eot it the
worst way, owing to the weather. lie says :
"with linked hands the days trip lightly
into the dim archway of the pst." A Tur
kish bath will take all that biiiom nonsense
out ot him, or a boot might help matters.
Following Sir James Simpson's lately
published defense of chloroform when pro
perly and carefully administered, comes a
report of the death of a young woman to
whom that antestheic was given by its distin
guished discoverer himself.
A couple announce their marriage and add
to the notice, "No cards, and no money to
get them." Marrying under difficulties.
